Lighthouse Christian School accepts the McKay, Florida Tax Credit (Step Up) and the Gardiner Scholarships. Families of students who are awarded these scholarships need to complete the on-line application and submit all required documentation requested. In addition, the most recent IEP or Psychological Educational Battery may be required. The Child Study Team will evaluate the application and reach a final decision regarding the student’s acceptance/non-acceptance based on the school’s ability to meet the child’s academic, emotional and/or social needs. LCS reserves the right to limit the number of McKay/Gardiner students in each classroom based on the existing chemistry of the group.
Students may be required to participate in the Navigator Resource Room program as a stipulation for acceptance. Enrollment in this program is limited and requires an additional tuition stipend.
Families must meet all deadlines set forth by McKay, Step-Up or Gardiner to ensure that payments are received on time. Families are responsible for any remaining tuition and fees once the scholarship has been applied to the yearly tuition.
The Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act (IDEA, 2004) specifies that no individual private school child with a disability has a right to receive some or all of the special education and related services the child would receive if enrolled in a public school. Therefore, LCS will use the IEP as a consultation tool. LCS is not required to implement the IEP plan provided by the parent or any school system.
